DAVID BENJAMIN SHERRY: Form Forming Formation

Posted April 8th by in Art, Photography


Touched by the Hand of God

David Benjamin Sherry, whose solo show is opening at OHWOW gallery on April 30th in Los Angeles, is a photographer on the rise, and maybe acid. Sherry’s brilliant photographic machinations include strikingly prismatic still lives, tableau vivants, all with electric colors, and as a testament to the electricity of his images, all are analog C-Prints – which means he uses film.

Duelling Pistols at Bonhams: Objects of Beauty and Death

Posted April 7th by in Culture


A Very Fine Pair Of 30-Bore Flintlock Duelling Pistols By Robert Wogdon, London, Circa 1785 made for the Duke of Bedford.

It was indeed a dueling pistol made by the Robert Wogdon of London gunsmith company that killed Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton in 1804 in Weehawken, New Jersey.  Usually the goal of the honorable duel was often not so much to kill the opponent as to restore one’s honour by demonstrating a willingness to risk one’s life for it. Even though it was illegal after the 17th century, one was rarely persecuted. This late April a dozen pairs of dueling pistols, including a set made by Robert Wogdon of London – by far the most synonymous manufacturer of dueling pistols, will go on the auction block at Bonhams. The set of pistols are expecting to fetch between £2,500 to £60,000 as “items of historical interest and fine workmanship, not death and destruction.” And o’ how glorious these pistols are in their intricate perfection – objets d’art that were once symbols of masculinity, honor, and inevitable permanence. Dueling Pistols at Bonhams: Objects of Beauty and Death will go on sale Wednesday 20 April 20 in Knightsbridge. www.bonhams.com

[LEGENDS] Nomad, Poet, 20th Century Prophet of the Wild West

Posted April 7th by in Culture, Literature

Everette Reuss by Dorothea Lang

In 1934, at the age of 20, poet and nomadic wanderer Everette Reuss travelled into the red rock canyon lands of Southern Utah with two burros and vanished without a trace. In 2009 his apparent remains were found, but upon further analysis were called into question as to their authenticity. What happened to Everette Reuss? Some say he was murdered by natives for his burros, some say he simply drowned or fell off one of the many jagged cliffs, and some legends recount that Everette Reuss fell in love with a Navajo woman and ran away with her tribe. The life, disappearance  and legend of Everette Reuss has been an enduring mystery, an American saga exemplar to our own imaginings of the great adventure.  A new book, Everett Ruess: His Short Life, Mysterious Death, and Astonishing Afterlife, due out this summer on University of California Press examines the life and legend; going “…beyond the myth to reveal a troubled, idealistic adolescent who flirted with death and lost.” www.ucpress.edu

The Renaissance of Photojournalism: Antiphotojournalism

Posted April 6th by in Photography

Photojournalism is in the midst of a remarkable, and singularly unexpected, renaissance. New practices, strategies, viewpoints, techniques, and agents have radically transformed the institutions and the fundamental concepts of the field. Whilst it has become fashionable to lament the death of photojournalism, actual events suggest that something quite different is taking place. The group exhibition Antiphotojournalism charts these new developments in exciting ways. Antiphotojournalism is on view until June 8 at Foam, Amsterdam.  www.foam.org
